Director small client to VP flagship client, internal move after less than a year. Going from leading a team of 4 to one of 20. What’s a reasonable ask as a percentage salary bump?

How can you support moody, passive-aggressive clients and not let it impact your mental health? I understand that managing the relationship is largely our job in account servicing, but the stress and anxiety is taking its toll on me. Honestly feels like being in an abusive/toxic relationship. And yes, senior management and leadership are aware of this attitude and supportive wherever possible, but can only do so much. Help!

As an introvert, I haven’t really been hurting for the in-person dog and pony show that is the typical consulting project experience. But now I’m realizing that my extroverted colleagues (who are obviously not getting the stimulation they need) are compensating by spending as much time as humanly possible in worthless team meetings where everyone just rambles on and on...

What excuse do you give on a project when you need to sneak off to a b-school interview and don't want anyone at firm to know
For the Ms and SMs, How involved are you in the teams daily activities and review of client deliveries? My SM is very in the weeds. Wants daily status emails, wants to review everything, be on all client meetings, join team status calls and I think it’s excessive and borders being a micro mgr. They also think that I should be sending all client emails instead of the team lead under me. I don’t understand this thinking as when I was a team lead, I did all of that with minimal mgr oversight.
Been here 6 months and keep getting placed on the same client since I started. (Projects are fairly short) Haven't had a chance to network to find other projects. This sucks 😩
I have ptsd from a terrible accident where two people died. I nearly died myself. Every time one of you says you got ptsd from a difficult project or bad client, I want to scream.

I applied to Berkeley and NYU on the round 2 deadlines (Jan 14/15) and haven’t heard anything yet.

Dear TCSers... I got a call from a TCS er.. last week and he interviewed me saying he received my CV from an external source. He shared his tcs email id, asked me to make minor modifications in the CV and then there will be a client interview. He said he will get back to me. I reached out to him 2 days later and he informed they were evaluating my eligibility with TCS. It has been 4 days since that and I have not heard from them. What does this actually mean?

I work in a role that has pretty much no work-life balance, so my life is mostly consumed and defined by my role. I really don't connect personally with people at work, because work is work. But I am lonely. I'm wondering what advice you have for someone in this situation. Thanks
